Kwasi Kwarteng – 2022 Comments on Strengthening National Security

The comments made by Kwasi Kwarteng, the Business Secretary, on 4 January 2022.

The UK is world-renowned as an attractive place to invest but we have always been clear that we will not hesitate to step in where necessary to protect our national security.

The new investment screening process in place from today is simple and quick, giving investors and firms the certainty they need to do business, and giving everyone in the UK the peace of mind that their security remains our number one priority.
